Just an unusually titled article telling you Trionders that an article is only good enough for a writer when you top it up with the one most encouraging thing – a comment.
I love writing articles on Triond. Every time I’m bored or if I just haven’t got much to do, I plan out an article for Triond. This summer, I lay awake till about 1:30 am nearly every night, penning my thoughts on to paper, deciding what I should write for Triond. Then in the morning, I make sure I write those articles and publish them by the next day. The process is ongoing. But when it comes to seeing my work published, nothing gives me more pleasure than reading a comment someone has posted on my article. I don’t care about views or about the ‘I Like It’ button. I don’t even care about the money I earn for those articles (Well, I do a bit, but it’s not much fun watching me earn only about 10 cents every day).
The title of my article isn’t to beg you to comment my work (Although, it is nice if you do) but it is to get you thinking that when there are so many nascent writers on Triond, they all need your encouragement. The more you encourage them, they will definitely comment back to encourage you. For me, a comment is more important than anything else. To see someone genuinely appreciate my work and put in their thoughts and opinions in a comment is more encouraging than anything else. Every time I comment someone, I do make sure that I give them praise and a little thought of my own, because I know that just a few sentences can send a writer back to his or her room to write more. I know that that is what I’d like done to me and to every other budding writer on Triond. It’s not just the experienced writers who have billions of friends who need the comments, its practically every one on the Triond network. And don’t leave commenting only to a writer’s friends on Triond. If you aren’t their friend yet, leave a comment so that the writer is introduced to other work and can comment back.
A comment means that the message has gone through to the reader and that they appreciate what I’ve written about. A comment, once written should be honest, coming out of what you think and what you feel when you’ve read the article. A comment is the simplest thing to send a writer and it doesn’t take a chunk of time out of your lives. Every time I write a comment, I feel like I’m heartening a writer. It’s like saying “Well done, mate! I’d like to see more come from you.”
Next time you read an article, you always don’t HAVE to write a comment but when you do, it feels good and I’m sure that when others leave a good and honest comment on your article, it feels good too.
